Academic Overload

(Recommended Academic Load)

An overload is defined as attempting more

than 18 credit hours in the fall or spring terms.

An advisor can provide specific information

about overloads in summer and other nontraditional

length terms. Students may only

enroll in one course during a mini-mester. An

overload during any term must be approved

by the academic vice president or designee.

Normally dual credit students are permitted

to enroll in only two college courses each

semester.

Prerequisite or Corequisite Courses

Before registering for many courses, a student

must complete designated prerequisites. Such

requirements are indicated as part of the

course description and are subject to change.

College-level reading and writing readiness

are required prerequisites for most college

credit courses. It is the student’s responsibility

to take courses in sequence and at the proper

level. Failure to adhere to prerequisite/corequisite

requirements may result in administrative

withdrawal from the course. The corequisite

notation in a course description indicates

that

a student who enrolls in the course must enroll

concurrently in the listed corequisite unless the

course has been taken previously.

Under special circumstances, the instructional

vice president or designee may allow a student

to register for a course without the required

prerequisites. Students are cautioned that,

under such circumstances, though they may

receive credit toward graduation, another college

may not accept such credits in fulfillment

of certain specific requirements for a degree.

Change of Schedule

Students may add or drop a course before

the fi rst class day, provided the course to be

added is open for registration. Students may

not add a course after the class has met once,

without the signature of an academic dean,

or their designee.

Course Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawal from a course after the official

day of record will result in a mark of “W”

on the student’s transcript and no credit will

be awarded for the course(s). Prior to the

official withdrawal date, it is the student’s responsibility

to initiate a request for withdrawal

from any course. The withdrawal will only be

processed if the student completes and submits

for signature the required withdrawal form(s).

The student is strongly encouraged to consult

with the faculty member and/or a counselor/

advisor prior to submitting the request for

withdrawal. Local college procedures are on

file in the admissions office for the specific

requirements regarding withdrawal requests.

If a student registers and pays for a course(s), it

is the student’s responsibility to drop/withdraw

before the “W” date. Prior to the withdrawal

date, faculty members may withdraw a student

under appropriate circumstances.

Any

circumstances under which the student may

be withdrawn by the faculty member will be

included in the class syllabus.

Satisfactory academic progress is required for

continuing

eligibility for financial aid. Consult

the college’s financial aid office regarding

the course completion requirements prior to

withdrawing from any courses.

Under Section 51.907 of the Texas Education

Code, “An institution of higher education may

not permit a student to drop more than SIX

(6) courses, including any course a transfer

student has dropped at another Texas public

institution of higher education.” This statute

was enacted by the State of Texas in spring

2007 and applies to students who enroll in

a public institution of higher education as

first-time freshmen in the fall 2007 semester

or later. Students enrolled prior to fall 2007

are not affected. Any course that a student

drops is counted toward the six-course limit

unless the student is completely withdrawing

from the institution or meets one of the criteria

required for a waiver. A “drop” in this instance

REGISTRATION

PROCEDURES

REGISTRATION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

LSCS Catalog 2010/2011 31

is considered when a student is dropped or

withdrawn from a course after official day

resulting in a grade of “W.” Eligible criteria for

a waiver include a) change of work schedule

prohibiting attendance, b) active military, c)

severe illness or debilitating condition, d) death

of a family member, e) class cancellation, and

f) complete withdrawal.

Academic Fresh Start Program

Under the provisions of the Texas Education

Code, Section 51.931, a Texas resident is

entitled to apply for admission/readmission to

a LSCS college or to any specialized admission

program at LSCS and elect to have all academic

course work earned 10 or more years prior

to the requested

enrollment date ignored for

enrollment purposes. If the applicant completes

the right to an academic fresh start agreement

with the college admissions office prior to

registration confirming the decision to enroll

under the academic fresh start statute, this

institution will not consider academic course

credits or grades earned by the applicant 10

or more years prior to the starting date of the

semester in which the applicant seeks to enroll.

An applicant who decides to apply under this

statute may not receive

any course credit for

courses taken at any college or university 10

or more years prior to enrollment.

An applicant who chooses to exercise the

provisions

of the Academic Fresh Start Program

must meet all LSCS admission/readmission requirements

and must submit official transcripts

from all colleges or universities attended. The

courses excluded under this provision may

not be counted toward a degree, may not be

counted in the GPA calculations or academic

standing and may not be used to meet prerequisite

requirements.

The Academic Fresh Start Program does not

apply to the Standards of Academic Progress

for financial aid applicants. Therefore, the

student may not qualify for financial aid based

on prior academic performance.

Texas Success Initiative (TSI) and LSC

Student Success Initiative (SSI)

As of September 1, 2003, Senate Bill 286,

section 37 replaced the TASP statute with the

Texas Success Initiative (TSI). Under the Texas

Success Initiative, students will be assessed,

receive the help they need to become collegeready,

and be evaluated to determine when

they are ready to enroll in college-level work.

The LSC Student Success Initiative implements

appropriate prerequisites for all courses. All

college level courses, with few exceptions,

have college-level reading and writing prerequisites.

These prerequisites will assure that

students have the ability to succeed in courses

at the collegiate level. The Texas Success Initiative

requires assessment to determine when

students are ready to enroll in college-level

work. See CHART A for TSI requirements,

scores, and exemption criteria.

All students, unless exempt (see Chart A),

must take a complete assessment (ASSET,

COMPASS, ACCUPLACER, or THEA) prior to

enrolling at LSC. Enrollment in most collegelevel

courses requires scores high enough to

place into the college-level course (see Chart

B) or students will need to complete all appropriate

developmental coursework with a

“C” or better. Students pursuing an associate

degree and/or certificate over 42 hours must

complete all developmental English and a

minimum of Math 0308 or TECM 1303 with

a “C” or better.

All transfer developmental courses must be

a “C” or better or the student will need to

retake the section of ASSET, ACCUPLACER,

COMPASS, or THEA and score high enough to

place into the college-level course (see Chart B).

Please Note: Most “TSI Complete/Exempt”

scores do not equate to college-level. If

needed, please see your academic advisor

for additional explanation.

Accreditation and is a member of the American

Association of Intensive English Programs.

Credit ESOL focuses on academically bound

students and emphasizes preparation for

college study. Students can earn institutional

credit qualifying them for full-time student

status, financial aid, and insurance needs.

Students are awarded institutional semester

credit hours.

Continuing education ESOL is designed for

professionals,

participants preparing to enter

careers requiring English proficiency, and

those seeking general broad-based English

development. Students

are awarded continuing

education units for each level.

Admission to the program requires prior admission

to the college. International students

seeking a student visa should refer to the section

on “Admission

Procedures for International

Students.” Upon completing the application

process, students will be directed to take an

English placement test before registering for

classes.

Articulation

Articulation agreements provide a seamless

transition for students moving from one level

of education to another by matching curriculum

to reduce duplication of course content.

Articulation agreements exist between LSCS

and various

universities, independent school

districts, private secondary schools, community

education courses, and other training and

certification entities. The agreements allow

students to earn college credit for competencies

outside of the traditional community college

classroom.

University Articulation

University articulation for transfer can be for

single courses, a group of courses (as listed

on transfer planning guides) or entire degree

programs (as listed in university articulation

agreements). Transfer planning guides or

equivalency

charts are course specific and

are updated annually. University articulation

agreements are major or program specific.

This type of articulation

provides students with

the assurance that the course work at LSCS

will transfer and satisfy degree requests at a

specific university.

High School Articulation

Course articulation agreements match high

school courses with college workforce courses

and may be included in Tech Prep associate

of applied science degree programs.

Students must fulfill the following requirements

to receive articulated credit:

• Submit a high school transcript documenting a

grade of at least 80 percent in the articulating

course.

• Submit an application for Prior Learning Assessment

by High School Articulation within

15 months of high school graduation.

• Earn an additional six semester credit hours

at LSCS within one year of application for

articulated credit.

• Complete at least one articulating high school

course as a junior or senior.

LSCS participates in the Advanced Technical

Credit (ATC) program, formerly known as

statewide articulation. A student may receive

credit for an ATC designated course at any

participating community college in the State

of Texas. Local articulation agreements offer

additional course options and are designed

for credit through LSCS colleges only.

For more information on how to apply for

articulated

credit, contact the counseling or

advising office at any college campus or the

curriculum and instruction department located

in the Central Services and Training Center. The

Web site for Tech Prep and articulated credit

is www.LoneStar.edu/techprep or visit www.

techpreptexas.org for statewide information.
